A former WWE star has kept close contact with the company and was recently seen at NXT posing with a current roster member.
Sha Samuels was one of the many WWE NXT UK stars to be released by the company following the United Kingdom-based brand being put on hiatus.
Since that fateful day when NXT UK came to an end, however, Sha Samuels has continued to maintain a relationship with the company.
It was reported by PW Insider Elite that Samuels had been spotted at the WWE Performance Center on May 1.
Back in March of this year, it was also reported that Sha Samuels was a guest coach at the WWE Performance Center for a two-week period.
On May 10, Samuels posted a photo to his own Twitter account, as you can see below, showing that he was at WWE NXT and was there with his former Pinky Party teammate and current WWE star Noam Dar.
Sha Samuels made his NXT UK debut in January 2021 having been a mainstay of the Scottish wrestling scene and would remain with the company until his release in August 2022.
Here’s a rundown of what happened on the May 9 episode of NXT:
Tiffany Stratton def. Gigi Dolin in the NXT Women’s Championship tournament
Mark Coffey & Wolfgang def. The Dyad to retain the NXT Tag Team Championship after distractions on the outside including a brawl between Ava and Ivy Nile
